The new format failed, not the moderator.

Given that Jim Lehrer is 78 and didn't really want to moderate the debate in its new format, I wouldn't land on him too hard. He did encourage a decent back and forth.

fwiw, some were calling for the moderator to call each participant's answers in cases of "factual impairment". That sounds like a recipe for each side to cry foul over any interaction.
